The real issue is how to implement the London Plan, which will deliver sustainable economic growth and environmental improvement in London. Mayor, are you satisfied that TfL are taking all the steps they need to be taking now in order to safeguard the land they will need to take for strategic infrastructure development in London?
I greatly respect the work of the Planning Decisions Unit, who advise you on looking at the borough UDPs and planning applications. Do you think the links are now good enough between TfL forward planning and the implementation through the planning decisions process because it is obviously going to be a crunch moment when London's strategic transport needs meet those detailed local planning decisions? Are you satisfied with the arrangements?
